No Fiscal Cliff Furloughs At Wright-Patt

Dec 27, 2012

Civilian employees at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton will not be furloughed if The President and Congress fail to reach a deal on the so-called "fiscal cliff."

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says he will delay temporary layoffs for as long as possible. Wright-Patt employs nearly 12-thousand federal civilian workers and another six-thousand contract employees.
